Last show of the season

Yesterday I went to the Quilters Workshop show in Tampa.  Many very nice quilts and a nicely organized show.  In that group they seem to have a number of members who enjoy machine embroidery, and for the first time I saw a lot of quilts with machine embroidered elements, some of them with large flowers and so on.  I can't say that is something I would want to do myself, but I do see the appeal for ladies who have the big embroidery machines.
Here are some photos, no particular order and of quilts which I personally liked:

 Perfect way to use very tiny scraps !  I liked the dark background on this one.

 I liked this modern quilt very much.
 Fun rabbit applique just in time for Easter.

 I thought this was very striking.

The Blue collection, one of the first applique patterns I bought.  I must get that out again and finally make it, I am always happy when I see one completed and promise myself to get it done !
Nice Blackbird Designs applique in a dark colorway.

Hexiemania !  According to the label, this quilt has over 4000 hexies !

Love this design, fresh and clean with just the right amount of applique.

Loved this, must have been difficult to piece.
Happy Sunday to all from an overcast dreary Florida.  Yesterday we had glorious weather and I can only hope it brightens up later today.  Until then, it's good sewing weather !

Dommage que ce soit le dernier quilt show de la saison :(
Belle journée
